Well it's 3 P.M.
Time to lug the gear
Gotta get it on the stage
My muscles flex, my fuckin' sweat will save the day

When I check the mic
I fuckin' check the mic
I fuckin' checka-checka one, two, three
I plug it in, I make it sound as good as can be

'Cause the rockers rock
But the roadies roll
Gotta take them like it, 'cause I take control
Gotta get that shit up on that fuckin' stage

'Cause the roadie knows what the roadie knows
And the roadie knows that he wears black clothes
And he hides off in the shadows of the stage

Because the roadie looks a thousand miles with his eyes
And when the crowd roars
Brings a teardrop to the roadie's eyes
Tears of pride

Because he brought you the show
But you will never know
He's changing the strings
While hiding in the wings
No matter how hard, the show must go on

Then a beautiful girl come to me she
Says, "Hey can I sucka your dick"
I say "Yays, I am in love"
Then she quickly says, "I sucked your dick, now gimme that backstage pass
I do not want you roadie, I want K.G's chode"

I'm standing at the threshold of your dreams
Without me there'd be now sound from those amps
Without me there'd be no lights on the stage
But you don't applaud for me!

No, I am the roadie!
A lonesome warrior searching for a soul
No! I am the roadie!
I make the rock go

Roadie, Roadie, Roadie!

    Isn't it obvious? Lol i reckon, that this song is about roadies? And that it is saying how they make the show go on and without them there would be no sound or lights...

    They wrote this song for the game 'brutal legend' where jack voices a roadie. But yes, it is generally about there appreciation for roadies. It says so in the song commentary's they did on spotify.

    It's simply to show their appreciation to their roadies, and give them the applaud they deserve through a song. Thankyou jason reed (lee) for being a great roadie and also joe beebe for being an awesome guitar tech! Keep the rock going!
